About Jordan

I am an ESOL tutor with four years of experience. At the moment, I am enrolled in a Masters of TESOL program. I am the teaching assistant for Academic Writing for Graduate Students, and a supplemental instructor for College Writing. All of the students in the four classes I help with are international students. In addition to tutoring for these classes and Wyzant, I volunteer teach an ESL course for immigrants and volunteer with a phonics program for children.

In college, I studied Latin and Ancient Greek as my major. I worked as a tutor for these languages as well. I took German in Germany, Spanish in Ecuador, and Indonesian in Indonesia. Because of this, I know how frustrating it can be to communicate in a second language and am empathetic with all my students, but especially those who are trying to learn English in an English dominant country.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Classics

I received my BA in Classics in 2016. I tutored college students in Latin and Ancient Greek from September 2015 to May 2016. I volunteered to teach elementary school students Latin from September 2014 to May 2016.

ESL/ESOL

I have volunteered in adult education ESL centers for four years. I worked as a literacy tutor with elementary school students before, as well. I am doing coursework for a MA in TESOL now.

Grammar

I've studied Latin, Ancient Greek, Spanish, German, and Indonesian. Latin and Ancient Greek involved a lot of English grammar work. I am tutor three sections of Academic writing for graduate students and one for undergraduate students. I am studying for my MA in TESOL.
